8. I buy beans for coffee, and grind them. I just checked the bag, and it is
clearly marked 11 oz. Nowhere does it say 1 lb or even 16 ounces, but clearly 11 oz.

Next, out of curiosity, I checked in the cabinet, and found a 5 lb bag of sugar, again clearly marked, 5 lb.

I don't understand how a 1 pound bag of coffee can be 11 ounces, or five pounds of sugar be four pounds. Are the ones you get mislabeled? Do you not check the labels?

Is it possible to reduce the other ingredients in your cookie recipe by the same ratio as the pumpkin?
